TRIMMINGS FOR YOUR HOME
____________________

New to the Vero Beach retail scene but not new to Vero, Trimmings Home Garden and Gifts offers a fresh perspective in its selection of fine antiques, original art, home and garden accessories, gifts and seasonal décor.  Located beachside on Cardinal Drive, our selection includes unique items that can provide warmth and individuality to the home. 

Long time Vero resident and community volunteer, Linda Downey brings her retail and non-profit experience to this new venture.  The former education director of Riverside Theatre’s children’s theatre and many year force behind the popular Festival of Trees, Linda is a long time collector and student of antiques, especially Chinese Export and French Quimper.  With her new venture, Trimmings, she has assembled a talented staff who are available to share their knowledge and expertise about traditional elements that can enhance today’s homes and the Florida lifestyle.  Trimmings also features hand-crafted Nantucket Baskets by Andrea Molloy and a variety of local artists including Cathy White.

Trimmings offers outdoor and patio accessories as well as a selection of containers and pots.  Both fresh and preserved plants provide seasonal accents to outdoor spaces.

 

A LITTLE TRIMMINGS TRIVIA

Trimmings was always envisioned to provide something “extra” for the home but when one of our suppliers, Indigo Home Shop, brought this tidbit to our attention, we knew we had chosen an appropriate name!

19th C. British Slang:  Trimmings – Secret drinking by women!  Merchants in 19th C. England opened “refreshment rooms” in their establishments and marked down their lady-customer’s wine lunches as Trimmings in the bills sent to the husbands.  Hence Trimmings became synonymous with secret drinking by women.  To go along with 19th C. tradition, Trimmings has come up with its own specialty drink and has founded a Vero Beach Trimmings Society.  Members will gather to enjoy our specialty drink, receive store discounts and more– ask about becoming a member the next time you visit us! 

 Trimmings is located next to Chelsea’s Food Market  at 3201 Cardinal Drive, Vero Beach.  We are open Monday- Friday 11 am to 5 pm and Saturday 11 am to 3 pm

Bright tropical colors help blend traditional furnishings with contemporary accents at Trimmings. Take your pick from one of a kind American, English and Continental furniture from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, or beautiful antique Asian, English or Continental porcelains and pottery. On the contemporary side, we have searched markets for unique items that will provide the needed accents for any home. Represented are lamps and accessories from Dana Gibson Design, Chinoiserie from JM Piers and timeless pottery from the Susan Gordon pottery studio.

Trimmings offers outdoor and patio accessories as well as a selection of containers and pots. Both fresh and preserved plants provide seasonal accents to outdoor spaces.

Gifts for the home, hostess gifts, the hard to please man and even the special pet in your life! For their convenience, Trimmings offers clients the service of a gift registry to assist in tracking previous gifts to loved ones! Gift wrapping is available at no charge and our shipping department is beyond compare!.
